#unicornthings is a media archaeology of the GIF as performance to camera and as experimental cabaret.
Two versions of an original artwork, one commissioned for Resonate '15, one represented as experimental cabaret. In this work, Streffen problematises the history of technology and ideas of accelerationism by performing a live media archaeology of the GIF format.
